Visiting Berwick’s Lower School

Experience Berwick’s Lower School by visiting us, where you’ll gain an understanding for why we believe that these earliest years of a child’s education set the foundation for all future success.

Prospective Students for Grades Pre-K-4

You’ll begin to imagine your child as a part of a community where our youngest learners are thoughtfully exposed to core subjects and to our uniquely crafted Exploration classes, which range from art to physical education and from world languages to in-depth pursuits in science. Visit us to learn about what an intentionally student-centered, whole-child educational experience looks like in action - and why our specific approaches to elementary education are so valuable. Parents and/or guardians are welcome to tour campus and meet with admission staff with or without their child initially, though all students are an important and valued part of the admission experience.

We encourage multiple visits to campus, whether through a combination of Walk-in Wednesdays, Berwick in Action events, your child's class visit day, joining us for Lower School community events, athletic games, and student performances, or your family’s initial tour and interview with us.

Berwick in Action
